WoW Director Moves to Next-gen MMO

Moving on to another project, Blizzard’s Jeff Kaplan has left his post as the director of World of Warcraft in order to work on the company’s unannounced next-gen MMO.

"World of Warcraft has been such a central part of my life these past six and a half years, and it’s success would not have been possible without the tremendous community around it, so I wanted to say thank you to all our players who’ve shared this amazing experience with us so far," he wrote in a forum post.

Kaplan noted that he still plans to be involved in the MMO’s future, adding that Tom Chilton and J. Allen Brac will now handle day-to-day operations.

"When all is said and done, WoW is still my favorite game. I play it every day. None of that passion is gone," he concluded. "If anything, it fuels the challenge of making our next MMO even better. We know we have some big shoes to fill."
